Monogrammed Trendy Purse Design

Published by at 11:01 pm under Monograms,Purses,SCS Design Team

I’ve been so busy working on CHA samples, I haven’t had an opportunity to sit down and blog.  Today I’d like to share a purse I designed several months ago.  My dear friend, Joan Ervin, created a fabulous design that I fell in love with.  After practically begging Joan (please, please, please, please), I know, I’m totally shameless, she graciously shared her stash of that wonderful leopard print DP with me.  I designed a set of matching luggage to go with it.  If you haven’t stopped by Joan’s blog, please do, she’s got this fabulous, totally gorgeous Valentine’s card posted with three insanely gorgeous roses on it, you can’t miss it, stop by and check it out.

I was so excited with the purse when I completed it, my favorite part is the handle, just love that!  I have it on my desk to make a template, I altered the design so many times from the original template that it was, for all intents and purposes, practically useless.  


No stamps were used on this design.

  • Paper:  Ruby Red, Basic Black, Leopard DP
  • Ink:  Ranger Old Linen Distress Ink, Versamark
  • Accessories:  Coluzzle, black grosgrain ribbon, Making Memories gold brads, paper piercer, SU Mat Pack, EK Success oval punches, Fiskars embossing template, , stylus, heating tool, SU black marker, Elephant charm, gold chain, jump ring, large corner punch, medium corner punch, Anna Griffin alphabet embossing template, Ranger gold EP (for initial)
